The present graveyard in Fedamore is located in the townland
of Fedamore. It is very well kept. This graveyard is full, however,
and the parish is currently looking for a new graveyard site.

The old Fedamore graveyard is also well kept. There are
three tombs in the graveyard. The oldest legible inscription that we
found in the graveyard was on one of these tombs. This inscription was
in memory of John Keating "doctor in Physick" who died February
6th 1732, aged 25 and 9 months. Also remembered in this inscription
were Catern and Honara, sisters who both died very young, being the
children of Mr Keating of Fanningstown.

William P. Clifford
A headstone of note that we found in the graveyard was
in memory of William P.Clifford who died February 16th 1949 aged 73
years. William Clifford was President of the GAA (Gaelic Athletic Association)

The Fanningstown graveyard is located on the site of the
Fanningstown church. No trace of this church remains, however, although
the empty space in the far right corner of the graveyard would suggest
that the church might have been situated there.
The graveyard is currently being done up by FÁS
workers. Many of the headstones have also been cleaned. The oldest headstone
in the graveyard is in memory of Michael Keane, who died June 22nd 1768,

Rockstown graveyard is located beside the ruins of Rockstown
church. The site is near Rockstown castle. The oldest headstone that
we found in the graveyard was in memory of Michael John Barry who died
December 10th 1814, aged 72.

Catholics are also buried in Kilpeacon graveyard, the
graveyard attached to the Church of Ireland church. The oldest headstone
that we came across, which we believe to be Catholic, was in memory
of Johanna Seahanan, who died 16th November 1809.
